Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Able Bodied Man  Jack Ingram

I'm [D]calling from the station and I [G]haven't got much time to let you [D]know
I've got a [D]ticket for Missouri and there's [G]things I need to say before I [A]go
If I [G]could I'd have you meet me but I [D]don't see how I can
I [D]don't have enough to pay your [G]fare
There's a [G]factory in Columbus hiring [D]now I understand
And [G]they're looking for an [A]able bodied [D]man
You should receive some money in a letter that I mailed two days ago
But when I wrote the letter saying you could come to me I didn't know
That I was going yo lose my job in such a little while
So now we're going to have to change our plans
They may not hire me in Columbus but I'm pretty sure they will
Cause they're looking for an able bodied man
Change key to E
If I'd [E]had more education I'd have [A]made a better life for me and [E]you
But such [E]simple manual labor is the [A]only kind of work that I can [B]do
The bus is [A]loading for Missouri so I [E]guess I better go
I'll [E]call you as soon as I [A]can
I'll be [A]sending you a ticket cause I [E]think I'll get the job
If they're [A]looking for an [B]able bodied [E]man
And re[A]member I'm your [B]able bodied [E]man
